so well. they tend to lose seats historically, but i think -- >> clinton didn't. >> i think there are exceptions. what barack obama is counting on is a combination of sort of wearing down the republican party. there is a sense of demoralization on the right, and if you can tamp down that turnout because essentially you're throwing so many issues at the republican base -- >> yeah. >> they almost can't resist it, and at the same time you're hiking up the excitement and keeping the level of excitement among minority voters high. i think the stuff they're doing on immigration is in part designed to do both of those things at once. >> unpack that bag. what does his throwing out that thing, whoever threw it out, his plan on immigration reform, how does that bring out, spook out, whatever you want to call it, the republican right so they make exactly the presentation he wants them to make so the hispanics, for example, will say i'm not joining that party? >> they did it to themselves. look at the reflexive reaction of a marco rubio, of leaders in that party. the reflexive reaction
watching something frozen in time, full of amber and anger. it may be the first time clinton picked up seats, obama may be on the way to that. this may be good for democrats in return. it is not good for the country to be so frozen and reflexively anti-obama. >> steve kornacki, and ari melber. >>> coming up, steve colbert's sister is running for congress in south carolina. and in the rewrite tonight, the most memorable, quotable state-of-the-union address in history. and just how it affected me. that is coming up. at tyco integrated security, we consider ourselves business optimizers. how? by building custom security solutions that integrate video, access control, fire and intrusion protection. all backed up with world-class monitoring centers, thousands of qualified technicians, and a personal passion to help protect your business. when your business is optimized like that, there's no stopping you. we are tyco integrated security. and we are sharper. to prove febreze can keep this car fresh, we loaded it with fast food, sweaty hockey gear, and a smelly dog cage. and parked it at a mal
. >> i'm a clinton person. that is the way politics is. >> bill: how does president obama stack up against president clinton? >> he needs to go into the room >> bill: here come the lawsuits against carnival cruise operation. he millions of dollars will be sought with the ship falling apart on the high seas. is it legal? >> caution you are about to enter the no-spin zone. factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ >> bill: i'm bill o'reilly, thanks for watching tonight. what is the biggest problem facing the country today? that is the subject of this evening's talking points. on paper the biggest problem is the national debt approaching $70 trillion with no end in sight and failure of pinheads to deal with the debt in washington. if the massive borrowing continues the u.s. economy could very well collapse, but in reality, no on the paper, the biggest problem the nation has is us, our mentality. it is changing. after the allies defeated nazis in world war ii millions of people returned home to start families and careers. prevailing wisdom was simple, work hard, respect your country, provide a
. joe in maryland, democrat, hi. caller: my favorit would have to have been bill clinton. there are so many to choose from. i was very young. it was in high school at the time. he put into place a lot of laws that allow for people like me to go to college. beyond that, he was just incredibly involved in science necessarily see a lot of a a lot of presidents do now. host: from oklahoma, an independent caller. caller: my favorite president has to be lyndon johnson. look what he did for civil rights not only for americans but for everybody in this country. he fought through the garage of our southern states, and he got it through. -- fought through the brage of our southern states. lyndon johnson said, "when i sign these proclamations, i am turning the south over to the republican party." the city just agreed with the emancipation proclamation. this is in 2013. lyndon johnson fought for all americans. i was debating whether it should be johnson or jimmy carter. jimmy carter, in the final history of this country is written, jimmy carter will be among the best up there, not ronald reagan. l
skill. we have gravity. that gravity won't change. the president won't suddenly become bill clinton the next four years. wasn't the last four years and won't be the next four years. either things will get done through more staff contact and cabinet secretaries and outreach and they won't get done and he won't change and become a different person. >> we're not asking him to call bill clinton. we have legislation in the balance. >> we've been talking about it this for four years. it's not going to change, not in his character. he doesn't like to do it, won't start doing it. >> after the president got elected again, made the joke my daughters don't really want to see me that much any more so i will have more time to call. >> there's still espn, there's still the duce. >> exactly. i'm flummoxed, i really am, why he can't pick up the phone, especially republicans on gun legislation, sticking their necks out and crossing the nra. doesn't look like he will change. >> the legislative theory of the case is maybe joe biden and jack mcdonagh, will produce overwh m overwhelming majorities in t
, 1989, 1990, 1991, the democratic party was dead. george h.w. bush was going to win. bill clinton wins. and republicans are dead. two years later, we come in because newt dominates. then it's bill clinton. i mean, it takes -- everybody talks about how the republican party's in horrible shape. and they are in horrible shape, but they need one strong leader. >> oh, yeah. a good one. >> when allen west says there's 78 communists, go hey, idiot, shut up. no, they're not. when you get a republican president, they can do it. >> they can do it. and allen west knows that his phone's going to ring when he says it. >> right. so he won't say it. >> exactly. and so not until a leader emerges, you're just going to have your fist in your forehead a lot because they're just going to outdo each other. and parties go through this. we went through it. >> joe's come up with, i think, a great frame on this. you were advising president clinton, then governor clinton in '91. you talked about the middle class, frankly the values of the party had strayed from -- or at least the public view separated from the
, george h.w. bush, and little billy clinton. >> i don't think mark liked the speech. >> let's try to be slightly dispassionate about it. [laughter] you have a whole host of problems in society. the liberal answer is to find it a government program that will fix id. state of the union address. the conservative approach is in what way is the government passed a regulation and taxation and corruptions and hindrances of all kinds holding back to this incredible engine of the private sector, which historically has provided unpresident -- unprecedented prosperity and liberty in america? that is the difference between the parties. rubio, if you look at the transcript -- i will not speak about the delivery. it was hot in there and he was obviously thursday. [laughter] the transcript was an excellent explanation of the conservative argument that what is coming america is a sclerotic, obsolete hanging onto every regulation, every increase in taxation, i thought he did it well. the problem is, he should have done it in a studio somewhere well-prepared. >> colby? >> it was a "saturday night l
this is what we need to do. that is something president clinton did, people don't realize until the crisis becomes threatened, but real. >> there is nothing he can do. i mean, it is going to happen. he is just making a suggestion, hey, guys, how about something smaller now if you can't get the big deal done. >> and sometimes that is what congress needs. i was just in washington over the weekend. you go in all the museums where you don't have to pay an entrance fee to get in. they're all subsidized by the taxpayer. one woman said you know, we're always the villain, but we're there doing the hard work they don't know we're doing. federal workers are always the bad guy. people don't understand the government is things like the post office or things we need. everybody wants to cut the government, but when you explain what it is, nobody wants to cut it. >> you know, i rely on air traffic controllers and we'll be relying them in the next segment. i'm going to find out if i'm going to actually fly in the next segment. joy reid, and ari melber, thank you for joining us. >>> coming up, on the seque
ago, i was looked in a brutal primary battle with hillary clinton. four years later, she won't stop drunk texting me from cartahena. >> in my first term, we passed health care reform. in my second term, i guess i'll pass it again. >> i mean, how effective is that fur the president to show that side? >> let me tell you something. i just sat here and watched that. barack obama, if he wanted to be a stand-up comic, he would be very successful. part of this whole thing is being able to accept what people already know and turn et it around. so it's -- much of comedy is a boom rang. and obviously, much of his presidency has been a boomerang. he has been the counter puncher, politically, and he does the same thing in comedy. seriously, to have that kind of ease and that kind of presence when you're following the comedian, the guy who does this for a living, and he walks up there just like, all right, guys, thanks so much for being here. clinton was good, too. let me show you some bill clinton. >> mr. clinton, i wasn't being political there, i was really going to show you. >> let me throw s
ones people raise. what they miss, is what would bill clinton have been without a second term. it wasn't the lewinsky issue that matters in the end but when he left office we had a surplus and that the triangulation worked and was able to have a balanced budget and couldn't have done it without a second term. we don't dwell on ronald reagan's iran-contra debacle. the fact of the matter is reagan's great diplomacy with mikhail gorbachev, margaret thatcher said reagan won the cold war without firing a single shot and occurred because reagan is taking the trips and meeting with gorbachev to end the cold war. but the point i'm making is this notion of the division of first and second terms and all the polls we see is a little bit overwrought. if second terms were so bad, f.d.r. woopt have had a third or fourth there is truth you lose some of your l.s.u.er in the sense barack obama won't run again and people realize his power is limited, his clock is running so it's sometimes harder to do legislative deals in the second term, on the other hand, barack obama can sign executive order after ex
on that course. >> good things happen when presidents are golfing with famous people. back in 1997 bill clinton got a phone call while he was golfing with michael jordan in vegas. he got the horrible news that -- true stroory. i get to say this because i'm a former politician. he got the news that if he did nothing, the budget was going to balance itself alone without any of his help. so he quit, rushed to the airport and came back saying, we have to do something fast so i can take credit for it. and we did. so there you go. i think it's a fascinating story. i did that for the kids. >> meanwhile, in the middle of all this, senator lindsay graham is suggesting one potential -- >> wait, wait, wait. can i just ask a question? >> because he needs cameras and likes to be on tv and has a lot to say. >> let's be honest, guys. john, you're not looking at me. you're reading. >> what is wrong with you? >> i'm reading about immigration. >> we're talking about lindsay. we poke at lindsay a lot. it's not personal. should we have an intervention? should we give him a call, or should we call somebody in the s
the sudden they change the topic to something wildly off topic. talking about fiscal clinton subtly you get electron why you hate gay people and not only do you hate gay people but here is a letter signed an stamp from ronald reagan showing that you hate gay people and you have never seen it before and don't know what they're talking about. this is completely random information. what are you saying? the answer to that is not pretend -- the initial reaction is i know what you are talking about. the human response, to the ego, i know what you are talking about, why do we deal with this? i don't know what you're talking about and if you want to talk about it, let me do the research first and we can have an educated debate from the issue. i don't discuss things i don't know about. it take off of the table immediately and if it doesn't take off of the table and they continue to press forward they look like a bully because it is the bullying tactic. you don't ask people to talk about things they don't know about. you don't ask a seventh grader to do calculus unless they are a genius at it and you
the president did, and when secretary clinton said she had a clear idea of the threats faced in libya, the secretary of defense and chairman of the joint chiefs said they knew that night it was a terrorist attack and knew of the reporting coming out of libya, from ambassador stevens, who said we cannot defend the consulate. she was not clear-eyed, she was blind and deaf and the president of the united states never picked up the phone to call anybody in libya to help these poor people under attack. the first ambassador killed in 30 years. withheld information. i think manipulated the evidence after the attack to create a political narrative rather than sharing with the public the truth about an al-qaeda attack that was pre-planned, pre-coordinated. we'll get to the bottom of this. >> chris: let me just ask you one more question about the sequestration before we let you go, senator. you know if we go into the sequester the president is going to hammer republicans, the white house already put out a list of all the things, terrible things that will happen if a sequester kicks in, sing hea
back to 19%. bill clinton, like the calvin coolidge. >> i think while it's bad for everybody, i think it's worse potential for the republicans. poll after poll, if you look at the full picture, it showed a majority of americans believe it's the republicans not willing to come to the table and make a deal, a. b, they like this concept of the balanced approach the president has been talking about. what are they hearing now as he head toward this magic day? the president saying let's try to make a deal, can we do something smaller? whether you agree with it, i'm saying the politics is the president seems to be in the position of trying to get a deal where the republicans are say we can't do everything. >> the president is trying to get a tax hide without any spending cuts. >> haz absolutely incorrect. he said he would do both. >> i have told by the majority leader the tax increases are real, the spending cuts aren't. he offered two bills that passed the house. >> all on domestic spending. >> you have to cut spending. >> all on domestic -- so you think there's no bloat in the military spe
clinton made a terrible speech at democratic national convention. and went on the carson show and-- >> ar the pac says if you give money, you get a water bottle. hydrated. >> jon: tweeted this hispanic senator and the media tells it. and nen nen dez ignored. >> the reality with menendez there's substance abuse to be covered and not getting into the issue with underage prostitutes i think it's unclear what went on there. the stuff that is clear they don't want to cover, but they want to cover someone taking a sip of water. i actually didn't see it live and i watched it the next day and i sat there the whole time thinking what, i don't understand this. you know, and then this little moment of sipping water is the whole story? >> in the meantime he did make the cover of time magazine, which put him on there and called him the republican savior. jim? >> well, nothing like that the expectations game. (laughter) i guess there is no such thing as bad publicity. >> at least he has a foreign poli policy. >> he says i'm not a savior, jesus is a savior, that will cut well with evangelicals. >> tesla
less than $1 million. and we'll never let the top rate go back to the clinton era all of these things happened. do you know why they happened? the american people supported those positions that the president took. >> john: but will the american believe in g.o.p. cry that this is all the president asphalt? president's fault. for more let's go to robert reich, labor secretary under president bill clinton and author of "we beyond outrage." good evening. it's a pleasure to have you back. >> good evening. >> john: is president obama to blame as speaker boehner insists if the sequester goes through. if i hold a gun to your head and hold you hostage do i get to blame you that you're late to work? >> only in ad verse way. they suffer from amnesia. they don't remember when the republicans were threatening to basically not pay america's bills. they were going to default on all of our bills and not raise the debt ceiling. together with the white house the republicans agreed to this sequester if there could be no agreement between republicans and democrats on a sensible plan between august 2011 a
several years have been bill clinton and now barack obama. i think a republican president might be afraid to do something quite so prominent as go down, fly down to florida for the express purpose of having a lesson with tiger woods former teacher. his name is butch harm and he's the most famous instructor in golf so this is a pretty big deal >> i think he could do it anytime. i bet he would probably come teach the president anytime. >> of course. he lives somewhere else. he's coming to the floridian, where he has a facility there to give him a president. he certainly taught tiger woods but the president of the united states is a big deal. >> byron, thank you. >> thank you. >> lucky american people. american people what do you think about the obamas taking separate vacations to the extent the taxpayers pay for the two vacations? go to gretawire.com and tell us what you think about it. coming up, allies or enemies? the u.s. considers pakistan a friend but has our government heard this one? 92% of pakistani disprove of u.s. leadership. by the way, who are the other 8%? also donald trump in
and even bill clinton cited by president obama as a model boosted growth as well, raised taxes, but also reduced regulation, and used the tax revenues to help balance the budget. and the end of the payroll tax cut, which you mentioned earlier, was also was a temporary hit, in fact, to the consumer's pocket book, handing out money from the government, money it doesn't have and has to borrow, doesn't do any lasting good for the economy. listen. >> it's not a recession, but it certainly isn't the kind of recovery that we've had in the past. >> democrats, megyn, have a different view on the reasons of course, but agree the economy is crawling along and needs more help from the government at least for now. >> it's good to see you back. >> nice to see you. >> glad to see you again. >> thanks, coming up now, steve moore, a senior economics writer for the wall street journal. want your thoughts on this, steve. on the one hand you've got the payroll tax hikes that everybody suffers who pays taxes and you've got the gas prices that everybody is suffering from and got this unemployment rate, so on.
-state landslide but claimed 119 counties. bill clinton won with 1,524 counties. do you know how many counties obama won last year? 690. that's it. 690. even though he won a convincing popular vote majority. gerrymandering wasn't a complete nonfactor in 2012. the gop probably did grab a few extra seats because of it. but the real problem for democrats is that their base of support is less spread out geographically than it's ever been, which means they can win presidential races and even control the senate, but when it comes to the house, their best, their only chance for the foreseeable future is a massive anti-gop tide, like something we saw in 2006 or 2008. short of that, the era of republican speakers could last for a long time. okay, that does it for "the cycle." martin bashir, it's all yours. >> thank you and good afternoon. it's wednesday, february the 20th. if at first you can't succeed, just call him a socialist. >> sequester scare. >> sequester looming. >> 700,000 civilian employees could be furloughed. >> this is all b.s. >> this is not an an traction. people will lose their
in a hypothetical matchup with clinton. so i think while he's got some making up to do, i think with the grassroots among republicans, ultimately i think he's in good standing because ultimately i think people will think he'd make a pretty good national candidate. >> let's stipulate, though, that mitt romney was not up against exactly stellar group of candidates to claim that mantle and they stretched it out and really wanted an alternative. but chris christie also much more skilled politician than mitt romney. >> john, christie's popularity has not worn very well with the great glenn beck. listen to him mope with the chris christie that he used to know on bill o'reilly. here he comes. >> i feel about rand paul about the way i used to feel about chris christie. i thought chris christie was really good and i ignored a few things that kind of bothered me. but now i don't like chris christie. >> in-depth analysis there. >> but can republicans -- are they smart enough to draw a line between a 74% approval rating and glenn beck's sdis approval? >> i mean that's assuming that glenn beck still has the sam
